my creative journey…


hey everyone – earlier this year while visiting sizzix they filmed this “meet the designer” interview with me.  i have to say it was probably the most personal interview i’ve ever done, but i couldn’t be happier and more humbled with the finished piece.  they have recently published it on youtube so i wanted to share it here on the blog – enjoy the journey…t!m

    what a great interview. It took me back to the last scrapbook show I went to. It was in Texas and Tim was there. I watched you share your paper crafting with all of us. I asked you who inspired you and you said you didn’t know, then you came back with the story you just told about the teacher. I don’t know how many times I have shared that story with others. I have all so share with my crafting friends, don’t be afraid, it is only a piece of paper… Thank you for your story and your craft.

    Hola maestro, greetings from Spain! A few years ago, when I started crafting, I sent you an email asking about vintage silhouettes and you answered right away. I was amazed to find out later that you were a rock star in the crafting world! Still you took time from a busy schedule to answer a strangers question. That says a lot about you 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a personal interview and your endless creativity with us!

  7. What a FABULOUS video!!! Thank you for sharing your life, talent and passion with us!!!!!

    Absolutely loved this interview, Tim! Thank you for sharing with us…it helped me to see my own life from a different perspective! btw, I am the crafter, and my hubby was the accountant! lol

    I truly didn’t think I cared to watch about a person who I see the name all over the craft blogs and on mostly all of the crafting things I purchase (b/c I am like that) 🙁 From another planet I think… however, I admire him b/c he is so humble which is a quality that I adore. I especially love the Disney reference b/c of my connection to it as well (through my son who has autism – I used to put Disney stickers on my forehead just so he would look at me; wear Disney clothes for him to pay attention to what I was saying so I could adequately do therapy, etc). Disney bedding is so “happy” and I don’t care if I get to age 60 and still sleep in Disney sheets – There is something about Disney that is a window to my son’s soul and somehow I think Mr. Hotz is a person I truly admire now. Thank you for sharing this interview.

    Tim, love this video. You have been an inspiration to me for a long time. I purchased your book, Distressables, just to learn how to make the cool angel winged necklace. Keep on livin’ your dream, so we all can dream, too. Thanks!
